It may come out in pieces, if you have to use a jumper to test the circuit instead of the fuse, or bypass the fuse for any reason, the jumper rule is to use a piece of wire that is two gauge sizes smaller than the suply wire, making it the weakest part of the circuit,
Note: if wire is 16 gauge you will use a jumper that is 20 gauge, since they don't use odd numbers, and the larger the number the smaller the wire

2011 kia rio 5 radio problem

It sound like you have a loose ground on the radio mount. Pull the radio, you will have to remove most of the dash, and ensure that all of the screw in the radio mount, around the inside of the mount, aer tight.

03 Kia Rio- can not get retaining screws off rotor...screws now stripped

hi from uk the retain screws are for holding the rotor/disc in position so when wheel bolts are removed they can be easily refitted as rotor will not move off line the screws play no part in brakes and the wheel bolts or nuts are what secure the wheels and rotors in place SO if screw head has stripped ? you can use a drill with bit size of head of screw and drill the head off screw then remove rotor you can then try vice grips to remove screw but if not possible you can fit rotor and reassemble brakes hope this helps

Where is the Timing Belt on a 2003 Kia Rio exactly???

If you are planning on replacing the timing belt and are not even sure where to find on the engine then please DONT attempt to replace it on your own. Replacing the timing belt requires knowledge of timing marks and tensioner adjustments. It does not simply come off and back on, it has to be aligned up properly with marks on the camshaft and crankshafts. Please leaave this to someone who knows! PS: the timing belt is located behind the plastic covers on the left hand side of the engine (looking from the front)

2003 kia rio crank seized tried replacing timing belt after when it would not start. managed to removed the belt but when try turning the crank it would onlt rotate 90 to 180 degrees only.

Bad news. You have probably bent the valves in the head. When the belt was removed it was not at TDC and the marks not lined up. New engine or rebuild. Sorry....
